Organizing Your Burger King Fundraising Event

Setting up a Burger King fundraising event is pretty straightforward. You can do it in one minute! Just follow the steps below:


  1. Choose your location
  2. Select a date and time range for your fundraiser
  3. Fill out some key information about your group, including the expected number of guests
  4. Hit Submit. Pretty easy, right?



All groups are welcome to fundraise at Burger King!


Keep in mind, you will need to request your fundraiser at least 2 weeks in advance. Then, the restaurant will have 1 week to respond to your request. The sooner you book, the sooner it gets approved, and the sooner you can start promoting your fundraiser!


When your event is confirmed, it’s time to spread the word! Log on to your social media accounts and let anyone and everyone know about your Burger King fundraising event. The more people come, the more you’ll earn for your organization. The sky is the limit!

Be sure your group and its supporters are armed with lots of napkins, their favorite stretch-pants, and this info: There’s no set-up, no cleanup, and no work required the day of the event (unless you count narrowing down your menu choices!). Everyone who shows up to support your cause must inform the restaurant staff that, although they’re most definitely there for the hamburgers, they’ll primarily be eating in the name of your organization. Burger King will donate a portion of your fundraiser’s total sales back to your group.


After you have a blast chatting with friends, chowing down on delicious hamburgers, and raking in the dough for your organization, your supporters will be asking you, “When’s the next one?” As an organizer, you’ll look forward to the next one too, especially once you receive the donation check 4-6 weeks after your event!


You can hold an unlimited amount of fundraisers at Burger King, so feel free to make it a monthly or quarterly tradition!
